A hungry squirrel has been spotted eating a chip from a skip in Deptford.

It is not the squirrel's usual diet of nuts and seeds but it appears that this squirrel isn't concerned with calorie counting.

The image was posted on Twitter by Anton Conlon who used the hashtag #DeptfordSquirrel to describe the mischievous critter.

Anton Tweeted saying "Here's a Squirrel spotted in a Deptford skip yesterday eating a chip."

Others have speculated that the Squirrel may have had a burger in the skip as well but this has not been confirmed.

It seems the squirrel chose the right day to be eating outside (April 28), as he dodged today's rain over south-east London.
